We often believe the Spirit has provided for our past sin, but then think if we are going to see sin defeated today it’s up to us. That results in us simply trying to manage sin, and we wonder why we it never seems to be defeated. We try to pull ourselves up by our bootstraps, we try to stop doing what we know we shouldn’t and try to start doing what we know we should, and we wonder why we keep failing at both – the answer is because you can’t do either on your own.

Faith in the Sovereignty of God really is the hinge pin of the Christian faith. Because if we don’t have faith in God’s sovereignty, we will place our faith in ourselves, which can only lead one of two directions, to pride because of what we feel we have accomplished or despair because of what we know we can’t.
